Some homeopaths can give you desensitizing drops or pills for allergies. That might be useful to some people who have very inconvenient ones.

My grandfather, mother and twin brother are all allergic to amoxicillin. Obviously that was passed down.

I am allergic not to any medicines or foods, but have all seasonal allergies, dust/dust mites (they're gross btw), all animals hair/fur except horse, grass and certain trees. I had allergy tests done when I was 16 after my face and tongue swelled up like Frankenstein. It was tough not being able to scratch, but I'll always remember that sitting in the waiting room - a baby was having the tests done. Poor thing just cried and cried, I felt so bad and sad.

Don't really know these days, but I'd like to take another food allergy test. My breathing will get funny for no reason that I can tell @ random times here & there. Seasons don't have anything to do w/ it necessarily either. It could be any season when I think funny breathing could happen.

I know I can't use regular household cleaners such as Lysol, etc. w/ those chemicals.

In 2017, when my breathing got funny out of the pure blue ever in my entire life, I took a food allergy test & it listed some ingredients (wheat, corn, etc.), but it must have been very minor because nothing severe happened when I consumed those ingredients.

Quick background on me: Diagnosed w/ allergic asthma in 2017 at age 42, otherwise never ever had any kind of respiratory issue in my life.

In these last few yrs, I've had several scary, out-of-the-blue occurrences w/ not being able to breathe as well. Overall, haven't had to use my inhalers much at all. But I'm about to get refills so I'm prepared just in case.

I seem to be allergic to loads of things. I definitely find a lot of things are irritants too.
Gluten, lactose, most grains, bananas, just too many things!

I try to avoid gluten but when I can't it used to cause me really embarassing problems - digestive issues - but now I take an oregano tablet each time and there's no issues at all, surprisingly. The difference is remarkable. Of course, everyone is different. What helps for me, may not help someone else.

I am allergic to several dental materials. I have spent thousands and thousands getting dental work that suits me.

Intolerant to high levels of amines.

Eat things like canned-fish too often and I sneeze and itch.

Penicillian, sulfa, corn, cattle hair, and certain types of pollen, dust and mold.

I had allergy testing done and had injections for years and probably even 'outgrew' some of these things because I'm not nearly as bad off as I was when I was younger.

Default allergic to texas weather

I never thought I had allergies until I moved to Texas. I sneeze often and a runny nose. I asked my doctor and she said it is allergies. Its crazy I never had this before. I stay indoors and try to avoid being outside too long.
I don't like taking meds for anything if possible. so I just have Kleenex and drink lots of water.

anyone else have allergies develop when you moved to Texas?

I'm allergic to Codeine. Makes me itch like crazy, but sometimes the pain relief is worth it.
